The Department of Radiology is vital for delivering patient information to enable accurate diagnosis and effective treatment. The department serves as a node disseminating vital patient information to the respective departments. It is equipped with ultra modern state of the art equipments which deliver precise information while minimising patient discomfort. The equipments in the hospital include:
MAGNETOM Skyra 3T MRI
MAGNETOM Skyra 3T MRI is first such scanner in Tamil Nadu. It delivers superior image quality providing accurate results and personalised patient care in very less scanning time. The unique Tim CT Oncology Dot engine can perform whole body oncology examination in just 10 minutes, compared to the conventional time of 30-45 minutes. Skyra MRI scanner also has neuro,cardio, abdomen and angio Dot engines to further optimise the workflow. The 70 cm wide bore avoids claustrophobia, thus allowing easy scanning of children, obese, critical and old patients.
MAMMOMAT Inspiration -Mammogram
We have installed top-of-the-line MAMMOMAT Inspiration system. This is a fully digital mammography platform that allows early diagnosis and performs automated stereotactic biopsy. The superior image quality helps to identify the smallest lesion (up to 1 mm) in a breast, which is not possible by conventional methods. Once a lesion is detected, an immediate biopsy procedure can be performed by the stereotactic biopsy method, which can effectively targetthe suspected lesion and extract the sample automatically, without any manual intervention. The entire process takes less than 5 minutes without causing any discomfort to the patient - another benerdover conventional methods of screening.
500 Volume CT Scan
This is one of th e first few centers in the country to install the 500 Volume CT from GE medical system considered to be one of the best tools in the world for CT angiography.
It is also equipped with six ultrasound machines - Two of them can create real time 3D images which are useful in the study of the unborn child
BMD & Digital X-rays
BMD or bone mineral densitometry with the DEXA scan is the most reliable way to accurately diagnose osteoporosis. We also have hl-tech digital X Rays installed.
